I'm getting weird jagged edges when using the blend tool. I've tried 1) viewing on CPU, 2) turning off snap to grid, snap to pixel, etc. 3) increasing the steps to 400! which didn't do anything except seriously slow down my computer 4) restarting the whole kit and caboodle.
My illustrator is up to date.
I would like to know if the plugin shared by Monika helped you, or the issue still persists.
Kindly update the discussion if you need further assistance with it.
I am still having this issue in Adobe Illstrator 2021. I understand that when you choose "steps" it will make steps, but it looks horrible. How is there no complete smoothing tool for this effect?
Because it creates in-between copies. That is how it works.
I'm not saying I don't understand how it works, I'm saying I think it looks atrocious and I don't know why anyone would want the effect shown by the OP.
You can dosuch a lot of things with blends.
Just not this fake 3D thing.
There are tools available to create extrusions. So why just blends at all?
Also: when you export to pixels, blends will just work fine.
Which paths form the basis of the blend?
What appears in your screenshot/image could just be one darker/bluer filled path on a paler/greener background (obviously without the steps/jagged lines that only show on some of the slanting edges).
That is something that many designers tell to adobe for do in illustrator is like a block shadow, extrude shadow we have updates and updates and nobody do something for resolve that without a plugin, the 3 ways that I know you obtain little steps when you expand, or do all manually, even if you do with the blend tool in smooth you see a great plain extrude effect but when you expand you can see those steps again, Adobe Help please
